Nigeria/Mali: CAF Appoints Ivorian Officials for Eaglets, Mali

Match referees for Sunday's 2013 African U-17 Championship qualifying match between Nigeria and Mali at the U. J. Esuene Stadium, Calabar will come from Cote d'Ivoire.

The Confederation of African Football has appointed Kouame Ndri as the centre referee, with his compatriots Cherif Mamadou Bogbe, Kouadio Oussou and Denis Dembele as 1st Assistant, 2nd Assistant and 4th Official respectively.

CAF also appointed Benoit Zianga as the Match Commissioner.

On Tuesday, the Nigeria Football Federation formally requested the Federation Malienne de Football to furnish it with details of its delegation's arrival date, time and vessel as well as size of delegation.

Sunday's match is the first leg of a final qualifying fixture, after the Eaglets dismissed Niger Republic and Guinea in earlier rounds.
